The 2016 Rio Olympics
When I was little, the Olympics were such a huge treat. The gymnastics were always a favorite of mine and I remembered watching girls, not much older than me, compete. I wondered what their daily lives were like. What they did in-between the four years of competition. The whole Olympic world seemed magical and loads of fun. In keeping with the tradition of fun, I found a few really good resources for tonights opening ceremonies.
Opening Ceremonies Bingo
I found something that really excited me. Mique over at Thirty Homemade Days, had these bingo boards. How cool is that? So as you are watching the ceremonies, you can cross things off on your board. This is a great way to make the long introduction to the games exciting. I’m looking forward to this one.
Olympic Ring Art
I love how simple the art project is below. Jackie, over at Happy Hooligans, used paper towel rolls, but I think you could use toilet paper rolls as well, to introduce the Olympic rings into art.
Here are some great questions you can ask while you are working on this craft.
The Olympic flag was first shown in 1914 at the 20th anniversary meeting of the International Olympic Committee. It was created by Pierre de Frédy, Baron de Coubertin, who championed the modern Olympic movement.

Glowing Olympic Torch
This one really caught my eye. You know why? Because it really glows! How awesome is that. I’ve made plenty of things with tissue paper, but even as a kid I would think, ” this isn’t that cool. ” But this one, with the secret light inside, really glows. Susan over at OhMy Creative was brilliant. She used a tealight just like the ones you get from Dollar Tree.
